Say What?

Interpreting for the Rain

The orange glow of city
reflects off clouds above,
a Morse dot and dash of rain
runs diagonal across street lamp,
countless circles intersect
on sidewalk beneath.
Pattern and wave,
Sign and sine
containing messages
of evaporation
and cloud saturation,
of currents which lead
to these coordinates, all pouring
a churning rush of channeled force
into the storm sewer.

Nature’s excess
we cannot absorb.

Interpreting for the Rain

The orange glow of city

reflects off clouds above,

a Morse dot and dash of rain

runs diagonal across street lamp,

countless circles intersect

on sidewalk beneath.

Pattern and wave,

Sign and sine

containing messages

of evaporation

and cloud saturation,

of currents which lead

to these coordinates, all pouring

a churning rush of channeled force

into the storm sewer.

Nature’s excess

we cannot absorb.
